My youngest son has just got his first 2 teeth so I have decided to start introduing finger food to him. Upon looking in my local supermarket I came accross this product.
Organic Crunchy Sticks come in a nice bright orange bag with an outline of a babies head and hands holding one of the crisps and there is a green flash accoss the top with the logo on.
This actual porduct is a baked corn snack which has been coated with carrot.
72 % Organic Corn 14 % Organic Carrot Powder 13 % Organic Sunflower oil less than 1% Thiamin (Vitamin B1)

Organix recommend this product be introduced from 7 months. It also suggests that this aids your childs hand to mouth co-ordination. I personally waited until my son had his teeth coming through so he did have something to chew these with.
PRICE AND AVAILABLITY
I got my packet from my local Sainsburys for 48p per bag. This is a little steep for one packet of crisps but the thing that swayed me to buy them was the fact that there is no muck in them.
I would say that they are available in other good supermarkets and the price may be a bit cheaper so do shop around if you can.
On first seeing the contents it resembled a very large wotsit in shape and texture. It is large enough for even the smallest hand to pick up and hold with ease.
My son has taken a liking to the flavour and I think he more enjoys the fact that he is feeding himself.
Upon tasting a crisp for myself I found that there is actually a carrot flavour to it. It is a nice light taste and not too overpowering.
I would highly recommend this product for any child of around 7 months of age as a great tasty treat to aid the feeding themselves process.
